Lebanese Chicken – Chicken Tawook
I had this chicken at a Lebanese restaurant and it was delicious with the strong lemon, garlic, and sweet subtle spice flavor and wanted to make it at home. I combined several recipes together and it is delicious. It starts with a yogurt base with allspice, cardamom, oregano and cinnamon and a lot of acid with the lemon juice and red wine vinegar. Marinate the chicken for a few hours and then you can grill or sauté it and finish it in a hot oven. I served it over an orzo pilaf with onion, celery, red pepper and cherry tomatoes. You can also cut the chicken in 1-inch cubes and make shish kebabs and thread it on metal skewers and alternate with onion and red or green peppers. Click here for the recipe….
